urging a federal appeals court
7:42am
to "uphold the law". lawyers say the trial judge who struck down the measure --quote- >> the supporters of prop 8 have filed papers asking them to up hold the law. they said the judge invented a right that doesn't exist. last month they ruled that it violates the guarantees of equal protection and due process that hearing has been stayed until an appeals court and they are having a hearing in december. >> on the national front president barack obama is working to reenergize or at least try to reenergize democrats for the november election. although he never used the word republican in his remarks he told the crowd the time to act is now to prevent the opposition from turning back the clock on progress. he also talked about the economy, its recovery and recessions impact on the african american community.

tight races are shaping up across the board in california. candidates for governor and senate are still too close in the polls. >> that's right i sat down with willie brown to talk about what the two parties need to do if they are going to get out that vote and try to win. here is what he had to say. >> if you are a democrat you maximize the turn out because if you are dead even in the polls, when the voting occurs, disproportionately more democrats will vote than republicans. that is where you will see lots of the attention going in the last few weeks. >> but if you are a republican your voters are going to turn out. a recent poll in alameda county said 100% of republicans said they would show up but only 7 to 80% of the democrats were energized to turn out. >> that is why i say what i said. if you are a democrat and undecided is down to minimal then you have to concentrate on bringing the bodies to the
7:44am
polls. that is where organized labor comes in, people enthusiastic about the tea party comes in, people anti-war comes in. that is where people who are pro clean energy come in. >> so those people get in why the negative ads? >> negative ads are to make sure that you define imam wise your opponent. and you energize your troops. remember, nancy pelosi won the house running against bush not by being positive. >> doe monoize the opposition. >> absolutely if they have offered enough material to be demonized. let's say you slapped your employee as meg whitman allegedly did or touched your employee or pushed them, that is giving you the energy you need. brown quoted as trashing bill clinton instead of the ad, that is ammunition. >> you will need something in the gut to get people in the
7:45am
end. where do you thing that is, that gut check in california? >> if you can get away with it, some times you take what the facts are and turn it into the gut check you some times make it just a little bit less truthful than it is but far more negative for effect purposes and it is what is called changing the rules. >> basic rule in politics is that it is one contest in which someone is going to win and you can win by making the other person lose as well as by winning yourself, right? >> well, -- >> voters don't have to like you just like your opponent less. >> that's right. if you can keep voters from voting for your opponent and maximize your own strength you can win the election and do so with 20%, 30%, 40% you don't want turn out being very high unless you know that that is to your benefit. as a matter of fact many years ago some republican in the east
7:46am
was accused of discouraging people from going to the polls because he knew they would never vote for him. do you think these races will be as close as they look now or do you see a break? >> no, they will be just as close as now because no reel issues that will be any different today than on november 2nd. people are still unemployed, foreclosures, are still taking place, there is still problems with reference to traffic and still budget problems out there for local government. people are being fired as teachers in schools, you can't get your kids into school. you are being mugged in some neighbourhood, shot at in some neighbourhoods and things are exploding all around you. >> boy, you paint a pretty picture. >> i am not on the ballot. i am telling you from the perspective of a guy who walks the streets every day, talks to the cab drivertalks to people running the leaf blowers on the

7:48am
